Me, to Sunshine: "I need you to bring old behaviours into play."
Sunshine: "What do you need me to do?"
Me: "I need you to crush Mollie's pill so I can see if I can stuff it inside of a hot dog."
Sunshine: "Which pill is this? Her flea pill?"
Me: "Yes, her flea and tick pill."
Sunshine as he crushes the pill between two spoons: "I don't know how you're going to stuff this inside a hot dog."
Me cutting a raw hot dog in half and hollowing out one of the pieces: "Just watch me."
moments later, Me triumphantly holds up hollowed-our-hot-dog-half, brandishing core of same piece of hot dog in other hand.
Me: "Here, put it in there."
Sunshine shaking head: "Stuffing dope inside a hot dog."
note from author: the fucking dog picked up the hot dog, and bit into the end that had not been hollowed out. The biting action propelled the core of the hot dog out the other end and onto the floor, along with the fruits of Sunshine's efforts. I had to scrape up the pill powder, mix it into some chicken-broth-soaked-dry-food with cheese and hot dog bits. The dog proceeded to pick through the mixture and eat only the hot dog bits. I give up.
